3:02 am
that. pete: walk by the crib stay asleep. an be a you were asking about the alarm clock this morning. not as bad as i thought because you don't sleep with a baby. you really don't. ed: got a little more sleep than usual. abby: longer stretch. pete: i know you have been following the news. guess what? no collusion. abby: has he changed at all. ed: hasn't changed a bit. only thing that's changed is you are on my left. ed: she is in macup and come in and talked about how i just recently got a hair cut. what did you do to her hair. turns around and hasn't seen me in a few months you are grayer: welcome back. pete: with me and with everybody. ed: we have a lot of fun with pete. abby: we have too much fun. i'm thrilled the news never stopped while i was away. it's still going on and a lot happened yesterday. including the passing of this omnibus bill. the president signing it not wanting to sign that bill. making that very clear, pete. pete: yeah. so he held. we didn't know what was
3:03 am
going to happen. at one point the president tweeted early in the morning i might veto this bill because it doesn't include the daca deal and my wall. ultimately he tweets out later on we're going to have a press conference at 1:00 p.m. everyone not sure. will he sign it or will he not sign it? ultimately the president decided to sign the omnibus bill. he didn't look like he wanted to. ed: he made it very clear and said flat out this is the last time i'm dealing with a swamp budget like this. watch. >> a matter of national security i signed this omnibus budget bill there are a lot of things i'm unhappy about in this bill. there are a lot of things we shouldn't have had in this bill but we were, in a sense, forced if we want to build our military, we were forced to have. there are some things that we should have in the bill. but, i say to congress, i will never sign another bill like this again. i'm not going to do it again. ed: he hurst be tired of all the winning by chuck and
3:04 am
nancy. [laughter] pete: unfair. the swamp delivered him a temperaturturd bill. the g.o.p. gave him a terrible deal. ed: how did he put them on notice, he signed it. pete: put him in impossible place. this is a president who loves the military so much that he is saying i will make all these sacrifices to fund this depleted military because of what obama did for 8 years. i'm going to hold my no, nose. i'm going to sign this bill and refund our military which has been disseminated. there was no much delivered to him that he didn't want to sign. i think his voter are saying man, i kind of wish you would have vetoed it but i get why you didn't because ultimately you may not have had a chance to fund the military as sufficiently as you did. abby: he better follow through on that promise now. now he is on the record saying i'm not going to let this happen again. the problem with this bill and you heard it from a number of the lawmakers is over 2,000 pages long.
3:05 am
you need cliff notes to read it. you have to sign it within 24 hours. i can understand the frustration from the president because i don't like a lot of what is in this bill and a lot of his space unhappy about that. the big part of that is the spending. ed: you are right. 2200 pages and basically after it was released it was voted on within 17 hours. this is what the democrats did when they ran congress. we haired all of the republicans, mitch mcconnell and paul ryan and others when we run the congress it's going to be different. they jammed it through. pete: back room deal cut at the last minute in the senate. a lot of things carved out and carved in and forced to vote on it without reading it. ed: the domestic spending is out of control. abby: $21 trillion in debt. this is embarrassing. ed: and growing. abby: someone else outraged about this is rush limbaugh. calls out what he calls budget anti-trump and
3:06 am
anti-trump voters. here is what he said. >> it was patently obvious to me that this budget is designed to separate trump voters from trump. this budget is designed to make trump voters to think that trump's presidency is irrelevant. this budget is designed to make trump voters conclude, you know what? there isn't going to be a wall and there isn't going to be anything serious on immigration and so interesting trump be president is meaningless. this remains what it has always been establishment vs. outsider. ruling class vs. trump and his voters. pete: i'm going to quote you, ed, this is a swamp budget a swamp budget mental to besiege this president. maybe the veto would be the fight back. i think he is saying fund the military, we'll give you six months. if you do it again in september, which is before the november elections, then i will draw a line in the sand. and he talked a lot about daca. i think for democrats, it's clear that they hate the wall more than they love the
3:07 am
dreamers. they do. they're like we will not give you an inch. they give him a little bit like fencing. not the whole wall. abby: the fact acknowledged sort of a big deal from the democrats. acknowledged getting money for the wall. pete: little bit. abby: even if it is. a white picket fence. ed: founding sanctuary cities and planned parenthood, all the things have you been railing against,. pete: pete you can't defend most aspects of this budget. can you defend the fact we're going to have more planes, more tanks and more ships and fund the troops and get the biggest increase they have had in 10 years. i know this commander-in-chief cares about that he cares about our troops. that has to matter. he has given up a lot to get it. ed: big opportunity is this funding now, this bill runs out around september. that's right around the midterm. if the president wants to deliver on the promise he made yesterday. cadrastically change the negotiations or veto it send another swamp budget veto it right before the mid terms. if you he did that that would be a major. pete: let us know on
3:08 am did he make the right call? ed: banning transgender from the military. pete: however will make certain exceptions. be a gillian what are you hearing? >> last night after 10:00 p.m. the administration laid out the policy that lace out policy for transgender in service. the new policy is the result of secretary of defense james mattis inel panelin mat ee costs transgender americans. transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria, individuals hot policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery, are
3:09 am
disqualified from military service. except under certain limit you had circumstances. as can you imagine civil rights groupings have already weigh new with their opposition to the policy and this vowed to fight it in court. this is also president trump's second attempt to institute such a policy. his first floundered last august when he ordered general mattis to reverse obama administration policy allowed transgender service but gave the secretary of defense only one day's notice. the white house is now hoping and planning that this new policy will stick guys? ed: gillian turner live in washington. pete: this is what the president ran on, said this policy should be in place, ultimately, listen, if you want to fight for your country, you should. if you want your country to pay for a man to become a woman or woman to become a man. maybe there is a different place for that having been in combat you want the least amount of variables possible. it's not to disparage anyone to do what they want to do, it doesn't obligate the
3:10 am
government to do it for you or accept that that is something that we have to bring in. i'm saying it's a common sense policy. abby: hearing a lot of opinions from people who haven't served in the opinion. get that opinion out from somebody who has been on the front lines, general mattis is not coming from political agenda at all. evidence has one of the most distinguished career crews when it comes to serving this country. he had a panel put together. more will come out. i do have other headlines i want to bring you this morning. starting with an officer who was shot several times by extremist gunman during a supermarket siege. he died overnight. lieutenant colonel hailed a hero for swapping himself in exchange for a hostage inside a southern france grocery store. isis claiming responsibility for an attack that killed four people and wounding 15 others. they killed the 6-year-old from morocco after he held several hostage for hours.

3:13 am
about it at all. march madness. final four. best weekend of basketball can you have. ed: democrats celebrating after the president passes the spending bill. >> we're able to accomplish more in the minority than we were when we had the presidency or even were in the majority. ed: are they celebrating too soon? we will debate it. pete: former vice president joe biden backed down after saying well, he would like to fight the president in high school. pete: what he just revealed, we will bring it to you. ♪ come to my window ♪ ohh
3:14 am
♪ crawl inside ♪ wait by the light of the moon ♪ applebee's to go. order online and get $10 off $30. now that's eatin' good in the neighborhood. and get $10 off $30. money managers are pretty much the same. all but while some push high commission investment products, fisher investments avoids them. some advisers have hidden and layered fees. fisher investments never does. and while some advisers are happy to earn commissions from you whether you do well or not, fisher investments fees are structured
3:15 am
so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management. >> when a guy ended up becoming our national leader and said i can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it they asked me if i would like to debate this gentleman i said no, i would
3:16 am
take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him. ed: that was joe biden. is he walking that back. he went on twitter and talked to him really you are going to take me joe biden. it devolved into this back and forth. it was silly for a former vice president to go out there and rather than engage in an actual policy debate, it goes back to this whole we hate donald trump. so let's fight him. abby: people are saying how juvenile can would he be and how low county conversation go. sips then vice president joe biden went on a backtrack and retracting those comments. >> i shouldn't have said what i said. i shouldn't have brought it up again. i don't want to get down in the mosh pit with this guy. i did say again in high school. i never ever at any time said i like to personally physically et cetera. pete: to be clear i don't think joe biden has been in a mor mosh pit.
3:17 am
he does have time. he's not just the former vice president. he is some believe the front run tore potentially challenge president trump in 2020. and there is a double standard here. i mean, ultimately he can make these comments, the so-called mainstream media, left wing media gives him a pass. is he basically saying i would like to fight the president of the united states, which most, if you said that about barack obama, if i said that about barack obama, it would be headline news. unfortunately. ed: can you take him? pete: do we want to do that. abby: we want to go there? ed: we have had a lot of competition lately. hasn't gone well. pete: we haven't fought yet. abby: it is interesting though going back to joe biden. ed: he is like never mind. abby: he does seem to care about his image. maybe running in 2020. obviously he realized taking on or talking about taking on the president in high school, whatever that was that he is el embarrassed by that trying to walk it back.
3:18 am
think about uncle joe. he likes to be more of the statesman guy not a guy who wants to get in the mosh pit with president trump. ed: talking about special election in pennsylvania all they do is attack me in these ads and republicans like making her the boogie woman. it's always personal never focusing on policy. this is nancy pelosi saying all they do is make it personal? all she does is donald trump, donald trump, attacking him. maxine waters want toism peach him. joe biden fell into that trap. known as uncle joe. he has softer demeanor. engage him on tax cuts. instead i'm going to take him out back and beat him up. pete: is he trying to gain street credit with the base. uncle joe stateman got it. known for gaffes and candid speak. in this sense he is saying i'm channeling all of you who kind of want to fight this president, maybe physically or met forkly. i would have taken him out
3:19 am
back kid from small town america who used to scrap. trying to channel the little guy. reach out to the resisters. abby: is this what 2020 is going to look like? pete: you haven't seen 2020 yet. abby: how juvenile can we get? pete: have you turned on cnn? abby: i have been watching home network. ed: and fox? abby: and fox. pete: let us know about the biden trump faceoff abby: who would begin in that battle? ed: still ahead. remember of the illegal immigrant who boasted in court about wanting to kill more law enforcement officers. well, his wife will few be joining him behind bars for a very long time. pete: we have missed abby since she has been away from the curvey couch. ed: there we go. pete: next, we are taking a look back at all the moments that she may have missed and

3:35 am
bill, walk up to that podium, pete and throw it up in the air and say you are all fired. i'm vetoing this damn thing and you better get back to the drawing board it would have been an epic move that would have just -- the grassroots would have went wild with elation. you know, he signed it, which you know, i hope he is true to his word though and he says this is the last time he does something like this. pete: his achilles heel is the dod, is the military, is the troops. he wants them funded and have you got to understand that as well. >> no, of course. listen, obviously we need to rebuild our military. we were shuttering. our equipment is falling apart. i get it, i understand that. i understand his loyalty to our war fighters, pete. but, you know, we are going bankrupts. and a military is not going to matter if we have no money in the future. this is the most predictable financial crisis in human history one more thing i don't mean to drone on on

3:37 am
anything else. everything. and the thing about donald trump and his national security council sill as we have seen from the leaks, there are people who are loyal to one thing. they are loyal to themselves. they are loyal to the swamp and strangely they are loyal to the press that will screw them over in a minute. now, he brings in john bolton and john bolton has some establishment ties. no one questions his loyalty. he's going to go in there. it's going to be a house cleaning and it's exactly what donald trump needs to right this ship. ed: dan bongino we knew he was smart and fiery. we didn't know he had a heart reaching out to abby and the baby here. pete: we know dan has a heart. abby: he has two daughters at home. >> 6:30 on a saturday morning. abby: a woman heading to prison for the next 50 years. da nell roy convicted of helping her husband. seeking the death penalty for mexican illegal

pete: that's a lot of people. next guest says although the students are well-intentioned the movement will do little to make schools safer. abby: a senior fellow and the director of the culture of alarmist project at the independent women's forum. great to have you here, julie a big day for people paths that the about gun laws and changing so many mass shootings. you said this is not going to make a difference in the end though. >> vast majority of kids coming out for this march are well-intentioned. they want to feel safe and no one disagrees with that everyone agrees that kids should be safe in their schools. and everyone wants to do something. but we really need to think about what that thing is. we need to use logic and look at data, avoid emotion. that is the way to make bad policy. so, again, i think that these marchers are well-intentioned, i just don't think that it will result in anything that will really keep schools safer and students safer. peter: listen you are a
3:47 am
director of a alarmism. ultimately you are saying doing something doesn't mean you are doing the right thing. in this case, what is the right thing to do and a lot of these kids while well-intentioned is probably misguided. >> you know what's frustrating to me is if you look at the lessons of parkland, the broward county sheriff's office, there were multiple reports of nikolas cruz and his brother and their deteriorating mental health. they had claims of -- there were reports of violence and access to weapons. and none of that was acted on. what frustrates me is i wish some of these kids would stay home and meet with their local sheriff's office, meet with their schools. and find out what is the protocol for the local sheriff's office when there is an active shooter? is it to stand down like they did in broward county or go in and confront the shooter? abby: you have a lookout of celebrities that are going to be out at this event. miley cyrus, demi la vod dough. the list goes on. go on their social media.
3:48 am
millions of people follow them. you have all these people showing up and to your point may not lead to much change. pete: mtv is sending bus loads of kids. networks sending kids to this. >> we know that most networks. most hollywood stars, certainly mtv has a liberal bias. i'm not at all surprised by this. but i do think that to some degree, all these marches, all this agitation, these hollywood stairs and networks pushing this leads to a little bit of protest fatigue. people get a little tired of hearing about this after a while. pete: great stuff. i remember when atf was music television. now they are busing people to protests. can i get a little more carson and little less buses? julie thank you for your time. amazing when you think about it. abby: i grew up on atv. pete: i did too. remember bevoice? is the celebration too soon?

>> we democrats were really happy with what we were able to accomplish. we were able to accomplish more in the minority than when we had the presidency or the majority. >> one of the reasons they rushed it through. they didn't want their republican colleagues to see just exactly what was in the bill. ed: democrats as you can see patting themselves on the back after president trump signed that budget. after slamming tax cuts for americans and looking like they might be abandoning the daca kids, should they be touting their accomplishments right now? joining us now freelance writer former press seant for senator rick santorum. good to see you, lauren. >> good morning, ed, thanks for having me. ed: it seems like the president wants base is frustrated largely because of that smile was unmistakable on chuck schumer's face. >> yeah. well you know they don't need to be gloating just yet. there is no question that the president missed an opportunity yesterday. he should have vetoed this
3:54 am
bill. and the swamp is alive and well in washington. we saw that yesterday. the republicans need to start acting like they are in control of the house and the senate. and they need to start governing like it. they should have never let a bill like this get as far as the president's desk. this looked more like a democrat bloated budget with the exception of the military spending. and the reason the president signed this is when he said for the military funding. he should have -- he missed an opportunity to veto this. however, you know, chuck schumer needs to not gloat because it was because of him and his democrat colleagues that he -- they wanted this daca -- they wanted daca recipients -- they wanted daca passed and they touted this more months. the president offered a for 1.8 daca recipients and he didn't take it he had they had president got like best a down payment on the wall
3:55 am
funding this president will fight harder and democrats will be against a wall of their own. if they don't deliver for the daca kids after making awful these promises going back to the obama days. this is going to be a real problem for democrats before this election u. >> it is going to be a problem for them because they shut down the government after just going on and on about how they wanted daca. they shut down the government over it. and president trump offered a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million daca recipients and they didn't take it so they're going to have some explaining to do come election time over. this. ed: that may give the president leverage in the fall. in the next round of these negotiations to get more wall funding if they are really going to get daca done. we will see if he can push on that. i have got 30 seconds. what about the fact heading into the mid terms democrats are not going to erase this image of not a single one of them voted for the tax cuts. they called it crumbs. >> exactly. not a single one of them did. now have you more people
3:56 am
getting money back in their paychecks. the economy is on the rise u more jobs here and that's another thing. the republicans can possibly rebound from this horrible bill that they put on the president's desk yesterday by making these tax cuts permanent. and they need to push the democrats and put the pressure on the democrats to do just that. ed: lauren apell, thank you for coming in today. >> thanks, ed. ed: president trump announcing a controversial new policy banning most transgenders from serving in the military. we will tell you what it means. roseanne barr schooling yimi kimmel on politics and the president. >> you were a very liberal, socially liberal person in general. >> i'm still the same. y'all moved.

swamp is the swamp. pete: the swamp is the swamp. yesterday we were rid of the because the morning the president tweeted he would veto this 1.3 trillion-dollar omnibus bill. we didn't know whether he would or not. then there was a tweet saying he would hold a press conference at 1:00. no one knew what he would do. we knew he wouldn't like all aspects of the bill would he sign it or not sign it this was the president yesterday on this big omnibus bill. listen. >> as a matter of national security, i signed this omnibus budget bill there are a lot of things i'm unhappy about in this bill. there are a lot of things we shouldn't have had in this bill but we were in a sense forced if would want to willed our military we were portioned to have. there are some things we should have in the bill. i will say to congress i'm never going to sign a bill like this again.
4:04 am
abby: is he going to keep promise. come back on his desk another time. and as you saw with this bill, you get about 24 hours to look at it it's 2200 page bill and you need the cliff notes and oftentimes didn't want to be there. ed: nancy pelosi said about obamacare we need to pass the bill so we know what's in it. republicans had a field day with it. it will be different when we. it's not different. pete, how does it feel to be thrown under the omnibus? ing. pete: if you are going to be thrown under the omnibus the reason you are doing so is to defend the military. i think that's where the president is standing here. he is saying listen, mitch mcconnell gave me a beauty as he would say. this is a beauty of a doosie of a terrible bill from the swamp. trump doesn't like it. it didn't give him what he should have had on the border wall. daca isn't included. some increases for things that have good. if you know trump's achilles
4:05 am
heel it's our service members. under obama our military was disseminated. sequestration killed it. he said i'm willing to give up a lot to get that for ships, tanks, planes. readiness. that is the overarching point still a lot of us, i think, would have loved to see him veto it. send the swamp -- abby: it's been reported that general mattis gave him a call before he came and announce he would support this bill saying -- had lunch, this is too important for our military. we need this spending. as you said there is a loft the president's base that are irate about this. they are mad about the spending. they feel like they didn't get in this bill what he had promised them. pete: the democrats are doing happy dances. ed: right. pete: chuck schumer said the area of austerity is over. i'm talking about president obama not president trump. the ear wrath a fiscally responsible g.o.p. is effectively dead. ed: paul ryan a deficit hawk. the democrats used to run ads that were unfair about
4:06 am
him pushing a little old lady off of a cliff because he wanted to cut medicare and reign in entitlement programs. let's spend spend spend. abby: someone like president trump who hasn't been in politics at all in his life and you get to washington, is he an outsider. someone who has been in business and realizing just how bad some of the processes are. ari fleischer the former white house press secretary and fox news contributor. he highlighted on this and said the president has every right to be upset. here's what he said donald trump as a businessman and outsider still sees himself as outsider even though he is president. is he frustrated. doesn't like the way the system works. his instinct told him veto it. force a confrontation and get daca done. but ultimately he went along. i think that's part of the fascination of watching donald trump when he picks his fights, how far does he go? when does he pull back? he is still very much of an outsider president.
4:07 am
pete: so right. you could watch him at that podium saying i want to veto this. i am doing it for the military. abby: shows the pull that general mattis has. he respects him. if he was to call i know you want to veto this but here is why you can't. pete: this is to the president's credit. he truly loves the military and listens to his generals even if there are tough choices there. pete: email from james yes, we conservatives are not happy with this budget, but we knew the democrats were not going to give trump everything he wanted so he got the budget for the military. pete: that's right. email from christie says trump can't win no matter what he does or doesn't do. i do believe he signed it because he wanted fund our military and felt he had no choice. we will see what happens in september. as you pointed out, ed, last hour, right before the november mid terms. very interesting moment. ed: might be more dramatic veto if he rallies his base by telling you i told you i'm not going to do it again. go get me the border wall with defense spending.
4:08 am
there is no reason why they can't do both. democrats wanted to leave out the border wall. pete: speaking of the swamp we will not talk about it now. we will talk about it later in the hour. the president also made a pick in john bolton who is someone who has been an outsider but an insider who is more akin to his policy on national security. so a lot o conservatives happy m the iran deal to north korea to china to russia. abby: very outspoken how he feels about that. now reports he might shake things up. ed: might fire some of the leakers. abby: i have other headlines i want to bring you this morning. speaking of president trump, a new policy overnight banning most transgender americans from serving in our military. the white house releasing a memo saying this, quote: transgender individuals who may require substantial medical treatment including medications and surgery are disqualified from military service. however, the pentagon will make exceptions including for those who served under the obama administration. also this: an officer shot several times by an extremist gunman during a supermarket siege died

4:11 am
up for him and saying enough is enough when she went on with jimmy kimmel. he was trying to push her and go after her and she said, hang on a second. some of you have guys have just gone way too far with the presidential hate. watch. >> weren't you a food friend of hillary clinton. >> yes i was. i had disagreement with her foreign policy. >> how about captain wacko running the country. you a were a very liberal socialist person in general. >> i'm still the same, y'all moved. >> we did. >> you all went so [bleep] out you lost everybody. a lot of us, you know, no matter who we voted for, we don't want to see our president fail. [applause] >> right. >> yeah? ed: leave it to roseanne barr. abby: regardless of what your politics are, shouldn't everyone hopes the president succeeds. ed: they are not. day in and day out. pete: i'm a liberal, but you

guys have gone so far that way that you left the planet and jimmy kimmel actually conceded that point and said you are right we probably are the defense of this president are coming from interesting quarters or her or who is the guy on hbo bill maher. speaking truth about how the lunancy of the left how obsessed they where hating trump. if you actually pulled back from that you realize it's based on hysteria not on a whole lot of facts. abby: your audience is against you. the host thinks differently than do you and she stuck to her point. wow, she has a strong opinion and a lot of people agree with her. what do you think? do you agree with the roseanne barr that the left has gone too far. we should want the country to succeed. can restaurants ban crying kids? one mom says that is exactly what happened to her. pete: i hope not. i'm never going to restaurants again. ed: should go to war with robert mueller.

>> russian. >> russia. pete: the best piece of sound i have ever seen. and incapsule late abby you were gone the last four months right there. the media in russia meltdown mode even after the house intelligence committee finds no collusion between russia and the trump administration. abby: is it a danger to the rule of law. ed: joining us life is alan dershowitz harvard law professor emeritus and author of the new book the case against bds boycotts of israel. good to see you, professor. i wonder what you think of the media and still in general what the focus is on. with the exit of john dowd, resigning this week from the president's legal team, what does that signal to you about where -- what the strategy from the white house is? >> i think the strategy is to prepare for war but to try to make peace to. try to have good cop, bad cop. the good cops negotiating with the special counsel, trying to get an interview
4:18 am
context where the president can have limits on what is asked about but ready to fight the war if they lose the negotiation. but i hope they are preparing for something else. i think the president greatest vulnerability is not right now the russia probe because there seems to be nothing there at all. no evidence of collusion and co-collusion is not a crime. i think his greatest vulnerability are these women. because he has denied he has had any affair with any of these women. if he gets in a deposition and testifies he has had no sexual relations with these women and they testify that he has, then he can be facing a perjury trap. that's what got bill clinton. what worried me is that among the list of lawyers that they say he sought to hire was bob bennett. bob bennett was clinton's lawyer the one who got him he will impeached. bob bennett told president
4:19 am
clinton. testify about the paula jones case. testify about your sexual activities. don't worry about that. and as a result of that he was charged with perjury and impeached. i can't imagine a worse lawyer to have than the lawyer who got bill clinton impeached. apparently they offered him the job. he turned it down. that was a very, very good thing for the president. pete: professor, there are some around the president who said he should continue to go after bob mueller. steve bannon one of those believing that this give and take may be working with him on one level but going after him on another level is the way to go. listen to what steve bannon has to say. >> ty cobb and john dowd had a radical theory totally cooperate and wave executive privilege. i have said, i told the president and told everybody and i told brother dowd i think that's wrong. john dowd is a good man. more attorneys got brought in that are now -- i think president trump is going to
4:20 am
war. pete: he is going to war over will the loud be seen through. >> i think he is going to do both. play good cob, bad cop. see how a good cop works out. if not he will be ready to go to war. he has very good weapons. not only executive privilege, but i don't think can you question the president about why he pardons somebody. the president has the power to pardon. the president has the power to direct who gets prosecuted, who doesn't get prosecuted. thomas jefferson did that. abraham lincoln did that franklin roosevelt did that when you start intruding on presidential powers, the president has some weapons to respond. also, if the special counsel goes beyond the mandate and starts investigating personal aspects of the life of the president, that has nothing to do with the russia probe. then he has some weapons there as well. again, bill clinton, the special counsel started with white water and ended with a blue dress.
4:21 am
that's what endangers the rule of law. there are no limits. ed: a lot of president's supporters this was going to get out of control. abby: you always help put it in proper perspective. pete: thanks allen, appreciate it.

4:25 am
she refused and was able to bargain the voucher for more. that's a big bargain. finally, $6,000 worth of food. that's how much goya donated to troop 410 after watching our live coverage of the saint paddy's polar bear plunge in new york. thanks for contributing. the group raising $5,000 all proceeds go towards the north port food pantry. todd had a lot of fun out there, abby. abby: that is so great. pete: i can't believe that todd actually jumped in the lake. abby: he is probably still cold. ed: he is. abby: a former police officer shocked by what he didn't see when visiting his son's classroom. >> i'm looking around the class because they are preparing the kids for the pledge of allegiance. i'm looking where are they going to look to do the pledge of allegiance because there's no flag. there's no flag anywhere. this is stage i of brainwashing our young
4:26 am
people to desensitize them to american values. pete: that father and former tucson police officer brandon tatum joins us now. brandon, thank you very much. you speak truth a lot online and you have a lot of followers. and in this one really struck a cord with a lot of people. you entered your son's classroom. they are saying the pledge but there is no flag. what has come of it sense and what do you make of it. >> initially i was shocked and frustrated. since then i have called the school. i have had a really, really good conversation with his teacher. she stated to me that there was reasons behind not having the flag, not that she was anti-flag but that i think the flag was too big and she couldn't coordinate putting it in the room properly. so me and her had a really good conversation and i appreciate her response. i told her, look, i will buy the flag and i will send it to you so you can have a
4:27 am
flag in your class and she accepted the offer. so i'm going to buy a flag for the classroom and i will send it to her and make sure that it's presented in the classroom. abby: just a reminder though of the influence that teachers have in our students' lives. not everyone would have the reaction that you had, brandon, when they didn't see an american flag. and you were so upset about this. you could see the passion when you speak. where does it come from and what does the glag mean to you. >> the flag means everything. the reason i'm able to come on tv, the reason i'm able to exist and the reason my son is at a school as diverse as it is because of the men and women who sacrifice. i think it's up to the parents to hold these schools accountable and make sure that -- not just complain about it. if you have a complaint, address it with the school and then make sure that you take care of your responsibility making sure those things happen and i think that's what i did and i think that's what all parents should do. abby: sounds like they listened and said you are right about this. pete: that's true. small flags true can you put up if the flags are too big.
4:28 am
here is my implication. in some schools they don't say the pledge. you are talking about the flag. at least they say the pledge. at love parents assume their school has a flag and says the pledge but they don't. what does it say about our schools and culture that we pulled these things back and don't prioritize them anymore? >> that's what i was concerned about. you know, some parents are walking around, i guess they are zombies to the fact. but for me, i'm active. i want to know, we need to have these appropriate things administered in our young people so they are not being brain washed to being desensitized to the flag and what that means to this country. i think people should be alerted at. i did. i want to make sure that they are doing the right things and that's why i addressed it and i made the video out of concern. i was always open to them giving me an explanation. they did that. i'm satisfied with it i will go from there. abby: what reaction did you get from that video. some people watched it many people felt the same way you did. >> yeah. i mean, most people understand and they were disgusted by the mere
4:29 am
absence of a flag in an american school. but i think a lot of people were open. i had a few people in the comments section tell me like hey, we will put some money together. let's put a flag together. we can even make a custom flag and let's send it to the school to see where they go. now the teacher has confirmed she will accept the flag that i september to her. and that's exactly what i'm going to do. pete: two other classrooms that you went to also didn't have it will they have a flag? you raise a larger cultural critique that we live in a country right now where flags are not automatic. the pledge is not automatic. what does that say of our kids. you say it's parenting. you are absolutely right. check your kid's classroom are they following through and have the courage or conviction to standing up for that teacher or that principle. brandon tatum, you are speaking for a lot of people on this morning. thank you for your time. abby: thank you, brandon. >> you are welcome. pete: mccabe firing back in a brand new editorial in the "the washington post." abby: cardinal timothy dollan why democrat are

[laughter] pete: well said, well stated i will be thrown under the omnibus any time if it benefits our troops and the military. that's where his mind set is he also tweeted when he thought about vetoing it that the democrats were never serious about daca and he didn't get his wall funding. democrats hate the wall more than they love daca. they really do. abby: they gave it a little money. they at least acknowledge that it exists. pete: it did increase funding for border agents. ed: not a big beautiful wall a little wall. pete: a white picked fence. you emailed us in channeling me a little bit. i kind of wish trump had vetoed the bill. trump had to give away a lot to increase military spending. now we have to listen to schumer gloating about it. abby: as a trump supporter, i believe the president

knows much more about the condition of military therefore i trust his judgment to sign this bill. a lot of what you were saying, pete. ed: carol emails we need the few conservatives in congress to throw out the republican swamp leaders. i think that's what a lot of our viewers are going to be thinking. trump supporters paul ryan and mitch mcconnell promised it will be different under their leadership and it's not different. pete: is the republican party a party of fiscal responsibility? how can they say that today? they literally can no. the freedom caucus is the last quarter and a few senators, republican senators last corridor of fiscal responsibility. i don't want put that on this president the bill writers and legislators sweethearting this deal and working with chuck and nancy to get it passed and then you get a turd burger. a. abby: general mac master is out at nsc. john bolton taking that job. expected to make some

"the washington post," everyone had been saying for weeks, months, h.r. mcmaster might be leaving, no, maybe, yes. "the washington post" breaks that story about the president's call with putin. it's believed it leaked from the nsc and all of a sudden mcmaster is gone within 24,

every single thing. i feel comfortable with guiding me on issues. pete: i don't want someone in h.r. mcmaster who thinks is he saving the country from me. i want someone who is enabling me to do what i think is best for this country. that's where i think john bolton is different than h.r. mcmaster. great combat veteran done a lot for the country. abby: leaks is still the biggest story. we have other headlines i want to bring you this morning. annual officer shot several times by an extremist gunman during a supermarket siege died overnight. lieutenant colonel arnaud belltrum being hailed a hero for exchanging himself for a hostage inside grocery store. police killing and shuting the attacker from morocco after he held supermarket shoppers hostage for hours. a woman closely linked to that gunman is being held. demonstrators in sacramento show nothing science of

5:20 am
certainly will look at that information to take a look at it. but, we have been able to find no evidence of collusion. it's time to move on. bigger part of this report though ed is what the american people should be looking at with respect to the 18 primaries and 18 election and certainly 2020 election. i don't believe that putin is going to stand down. i believe he will continue his malign influence campaign in america. you and i as voters are the last line of defense how we are being affected by the campaign putin might be putting forward. we have things to recommend that folks need to take. ed: headline is no evidence of collusion but we need to be vigilant in 2018 and 2020 campaigns. we appreciate your time today. >> that's right. i think he is practicing in '18 and somebody else in 2020. ed: thanks for coming in with the info. >> good to be with you. ed: seven u.s. service members made the ultimate sacrifice when they were killed in a crash in iraq. the tunnels to towers which we spotted has been helping two of the hero's families. you can help too.

5:25 am
effort. from the tunnels to towers foundation tiller and john turner family friend who also served in the military with deshon. i'm so sorry for your loss. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. abby: heart breaking what continues to happen to so many men and women in our military: give us the update. what are you working on right now. >> well, we are at $460,000 raise you had. the goal is 700,000. pay off both their mortgages. i think it's very important for measures to remember that when our service members go over and leave their families behind, something happens to them, that we make a contract with america with these great service members that we are going to take care of their families. with your help and help of so many people we are 460,000. we need 24,000. we would like to do it today and tomorrow so we could give them the good news. because they have enough to worry about. abby: we have loyal viewers. pete: very much. so. abby: we will have all the information on our website u tunnel to
5:26 am
pete: of course it's tunnel to john, you lost your friend, a great american. he left behind a wife and two kids. and this effort is to pay a mortgage. you can't bring him back, a mortgage is just one thing. who was he? explain who he was and what this means to you. >> deshon was a special friend to many people besides myself. he was a father. he was a hard working. he wanted to do everything right. he wanted to do everything right for his family. he loved them so much the tum to towers is so important. i just spoke to his wife yesterday. she was so emotional. this is such a great opportunity for the family not to have to worry about the raising her children she
5:27 am
doesn't have to worry working several jobs. it's important that she can spend time with her children. and that's the great opportunity this organization is doing for them i is providing those comforts while it doesn't replace deshon it can try to continue forward. and as much as they can. abby: you were readings about deshon and telling us about him. sounds like family was everything to him. couldn't wait to get married to have kids. we often forget the role our family plays in military. mom, dad, wives and kids. you know this because you are part of the military family. >> my brother on 9/11 when he gave up his life left five beautiful children behind. a beautiful wife. and everyone gathered together. everybody came together and lifted our family and took care of them. in so many ways took care of us u this is what we want to do today. john was good friends. his family was sean's
5:28 am
family. the kids played with each other. 1-year-old and 3-year-old deshon had. christopher raguso, a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old. and it's incredible that the sacrifice that the families make. so once again, i think it our responsibility to make sure as americans that we take care of those who protect us. pete: they sacrifice time and time again. the families but also these are guys who serve in the fdny and go over in iraq and serve in another country to bring security to our country back here. you were in security as well. that's part of the reason you got to know deshon. what did servicemen to him and is he looking down right now at his family. what is he saying to this effort to give back to his family? >> the most important thing about this, da shawn is that he wanted to do everything right. he worked so hard to provide for his family. he wanted to be an example to his family. he wanted to be an example to his community. and to the rescue community in which he worked with we are a very close knit
5:29 am
community. and he wanted to be an example of excellence for his family. and i think it's important to take a moment to recognize, you know, his children. and being in his shoes i would want to say how much he loves them that's the whole point of this to say i love you. as much come over we can't replace him. that's the struggle that the family. abby: what a great reminder those kids will have. please give our best to his wife rebecca. thinking about those families. john, frank, thank you for being here and helping to these families. pete: some causes you can give to in the world. donate by going to tunnel 2 and this money is going to pay mortgages. 100 percent to pay mortgages so they can have a better life given the sacrifice of those men. thank you very much for being here.

>> a matter of national security. i have signed this omnibus budget bill. as much opposition to the military as we have had from the democrats, and it has been tremendous, i try to explain to them the military is for republicans and
5:35 am
democrats. our military is very depleted. but it's rapidly getting better. and in a short period of time it will be stronger than it has ever been. pete: that was president trump yesterday at 1:00 at a press conference as he signed the omnibus bill. we will bring in sean spicer former white house press secretary to respond to that you and all of us were watching the president yesterday. he looked like a man conflicted obviously supporting our military but not happy what was in this 1.3 trillion-dollar bill. sean, bring us inside his decision here. >> speaking of conflicted i want to welcome back abby. i'm not sure if she is more conflicted leaving her baby or the need for you two to have her back. got to be tough for her. as much as that young child you really needed her back. abby: sean, good to have you on. always good to have you on on first day back.
5:36 am
ed: punches thrown immediately. to get to the heart of the question i think the president clearly looked conflicted and he made that known he would never sign another bill like that. the military needs the increases that he is getting both in terms of personnel, the raise that military uniformed personnel will get as far as the hardware that he talked about. the different fighting systems that have been decompleted and the navy in need of additional ships and long-term planning. so this money is well, well needed. the president was also right. this shouldn't be a republican or democratic issue. the democrats sort of held increases in the military and the national defense hostage to get other spending on domestic issues that they feel are important, as opposed to saying we should all agree ton national defense. one of the things that i don't think every viewer probably appreciates because the fact the production don't have a 60 vote majority in the senate, the democrats have a lot of sway in the each of these must past bills. that's why the president was very right in calling for the end of the filibuster. because if we just had a
5:37 am
majority in the senate, 50-plus ones getting these things done and funding the priorities the president wants for his agenda. >> what do you like better the funding for planned parenthood or the funding for sanctuary cities? >> that's like abby having to choose between you and pete. ed: the point is a lot of people are making not to be a victim. he hasn't changed the swamp, has he? >> i think he made it clear. set the tone yesterday. we were facing a government shut down. he had a deal in the end at the end of the day sometimes you may not like every deal but on net balance you get more of what you want or less. he fought very hard for the military for the increase that the men and women would get. the raise as well as the long-term increase in hardware spending for certain weapon systems that are crucial to our national defense. so, on balance, i think he clearly realized that it was
5:38 am
a better deal. but he also realizes that this is not going to go on any further and he sent a clear message to congress that issues that aren't in our country's best interest won't be funded. he asked for a line item veto. i think that should go through the process and done in a constitutional way. he is absolutely right. if congress wants to fight hard for them they can. they shouldn't be sneaking things in to a 2,000 page bill that nobody has read. i agree wholeheartedly with the comments the president made yesterday. at some point have you got it do what have you got to do. have you got to draw a line in the sand. as our allies have seen around the world. i wouldn't test this president. abby: giving people a few hours to read what's in that over 2,000 page bill. i want to get your thoughts on another shakeup that happened in the white house this week. general mcmaster is out. john bolton is now taking over at the nsc. your thoughts on how his role may change things there and is he going to bring people in and take people out? what's going on? >> look, i think since day one have you seen a process. this president came in as a
5:39 am
disrupter. is he going to continue to do that. and he will continue to bring in people that i think understand how to implement the strategy that he wants. one of the mistakes that a think a lot of people in the media and pundits have made is try to figure out every person and what -- where their views are. at the end of the day, this is less about individuals' views than their understanding of what the president wants to implement and their belief in how to implement that. this is more of a relationship that the president is trying to establish with key staff to make sure that they understand hits strategy and that they have the tools to implement it. that's it plain and simple. not about whether or not they agree whole party heartedly about every position he takes. goodness knows you arener going to find thearn. continue to be church because that's who he is. is he a disrupter. he is not a politician that's had a cadre of people in his pocket waiting to come into government. and is he going to find that secret sauce over and over again in each of these areas of people that are willing to come in and further his

5:48 am
this week talking with the president about sanctuary cities. i talked about maybe we need to build a border wall between california and arizona. the left has gone historical as usual. seems like they can't take a joke. the issue is very serious that look, these dangerous policies out of california where they are choosing to let violent criminal aliens to be released from jail and not notify federal authorities and be released back into the community, they are not just impacting california communities. this has the opportunity to impact safety and security across the whole country. that's the whole point. their defiance of federal laws are dangerous for all of us. pete: we live in a union where you can cross state lines for any reason at any time. lawlessness in one state effects the lawlessness in another. you are saying we can be as strict as we want to be in arizona, if criminals are allowed, ms-13 and others to provide haven in california that's going to trickle into arizona. >> exactly. and not just arizona. i mean we are seeing that in ms-13 gang members. you see it with the opioid crisis. you cannot have just one state who chooses to be

6:01 am
>> where are they going to do a pledge of allegiance because there's no flag. this is stage one of brain washing our young people. >> look i'll buy the flag and send it to you so you can have a flag in your classroom. >> ♪ ♪ ed: we've been playing abbey's favorite music all morning in honor of her. welcome back. >> abby: i'm trying to separate myself from isabelle and this is just bringing it all. pete: ease it in a little bit. >> abby: it's so good to be back geraldo congratulations. i've missed you too. she's 25. she's thinking of working at cnn though so i don't know. i failed somewhere along the
6:02 am
line. >> abby: geraldo it's great to see you. the last four months you always do a fantastic job but let's get to the news of the day, the bill the president threatened to veto that bill that came on to his desk tweeting out about that reporting he had a lunch with general mattis saying this is too important for our bill we need this spending to continue on obviously the president cares so much about our troops and military and he ended up signing this bill. what's your reaction? geraldo: well my reaction is it was a mediocre chapter in the president's tenure. it was a bill that exactly the kind of thing that he campaigned against. it seems to, you know, water the swamp rather than drain it. you know, dick cheney said famously that ronald regan proved that deficits don't matter, you know, so if deficits don't matter then i guess there's plenty of money to go around for everybody's project, seems to me that chuck schumer got a lot of what he wantedded. >> abby: a lot of people are
6:03 am
fired up and angry and a lot of the president's base talking about the spending saying he's not fighting for the things he campaigned for the president seemed very conflicted yesterday in making that decision. geraldo: well for him to pledge for example, that i'll never ever do this again and sign an omnibus bill like this again, let's say what happens next year? i don't think there's any faith in that pledge. seems to me washington the monster the deep state is so powerful, you know, when he was threatening to veto what i hear is that every lobbyist in washington was calling their legislators saying is really true will it happen am i going to get screwed out of my money for whatever it is? pete: geraldo the president spoke about that yesterday when he announced he would sign the bill. listen to what he said. president trump: it's a matter of national security i've signed this omnibus budget bill. there are a lot of things that i'm unhappy about in this bill. there are a lot of things that we shouldn't have had in this
6:04 am
bill but we were in a sense forced if we want to build our military we were forced to have. there are some things that we should have in the bill but i say to congress, i will never sign another bill like this again. i'm not going to do it again. the democrats just fought every single inch of the way. they did not want daca in this bill. i do want the hispanic community to know and daca recipients to know that republicans are much more on your side than the democrats who are using you for their own purposes. pete: so he pointed out in his tweet as well no daca funding also very limited on the wall. he points to his support for the military is the reason to sign it get us inside his calculation on whether to sign or veto that? geraldo: well i think that the on daca specifically, pete, the president and i had a
6:05 am
conservation about that at dinner at mar-a-lago and what i was urging him to do is make it simple. okay? you mentioned the 1.5 million dreamers getting some kind of path to citizenship or normalization of their status and on the other hand getting 25 billion for the wall. i said that's a great deal. you have one of the most radical left wing congressmen in favor of 25 billion, schumer said he would do it a bunch of them. keep it simple and what happened is both sides then because they perceived that immigration will be the most volatile issue again in the midterm election it seems to me that both sides decided screw the dreamers, screw the wall, we're going to fight this out. this is a one way the republican s see they can mobilize their base. pete: but the president is willing don't the democrats hate the wall more than they love the dreamers? geraldo: i think that i love the president but to say that the president is willing and the
6:06 am
democrats are not i think is a very perochial one-sided view of it. pete: how many of them said they would actually build the wall and honestly the president said i will give you daca. geraldo: but what happened then is he threw in chain migration and then he threw in the reduction in legal immigration and then he threw in other the republicans, the right threw in other issues and the democrats then said instead of a million and a half what about their parents, grandparents and nann ies? didn't seem to me that there was sincere commitment to affect in a positive way these kid's lives and i -- >> abby: the ultimate swamp at play. throw whatever you want in there geraldo: it was just as swampy as the omnibus bill. ed: speaking of business as usual big picture democrats it seems as they've been fighting the president and attacking him on almost every issue they're not focused on the actual issues and coming up with their own agenda and instead you get comments where joe biden sort of challenges the president to the
6:07 am
school yard fight and the high school locker room and now, he of course is backpedaling. >> shouldn't have said what i said. shouldn't have brought it up again, because i don't want to get down to the mosh pit with this guy. i did say, i used again, in high school. i never ever at any time said i would like to personally physically, et cetera. ed: you know pete made a good point earlier in the show it seemed like biden with the initial comment about the fight was trying to get street credit with the left and they want to resist president trump. so now his credibility should be that he's a statesman, a retired vice president what went wrong here? geraldo: these two, you know it's ridiculous. it was funny howard stern once instigated a fight between me and stallone's brother frank and i think stern should promote the fight between donald trump and joe biden. joe biden is going to win the pre-fight trash talk and the
6:08 am
president would kick his butt. i think it probably is as you suggested he's trying to get street credit but he's 75 now, 76 now, if he ran he'd be the oldest candidate since moses. >> [laughter] geraldo: i think that like hillary clinton, i think that the former vice president should go quietly into the sunset. pete: but do you really think he will because he's atop a lot of these polls and a lot of people think he can tap into middle america because he speaks that sort of language. are they really going to go there potentially again? geraldo: i'll tell you this about joe biden and i relate to him as an almost 75 year old man myself. it's not how you feel and it's how you look and he looks okay but when you come to running for office, it's how you, it's rather you have the stamina to do it, you know, the president and i spoke to the president about this also, has amazing energy for a 71 year old guy whose 240 pounds and, you know,
6:09 am
not in the greatest shape but he bounded on the stage just like he did in pennsylvania remember what's in pennsylvania a couple weeks ago, that energy standing up there speaking. he's got and he killed hillary clinton's candidacy with his physical exuberance, you know, joe biden doesn't show that now and imagine a couple years from now, it really, you can deny time for a time but then it -- ed: what about this real fight? you had this terror incident with isis and france and had this officer step up and pay the ultimate sacrifice. >> abby: it's an incredible story of heroism with this officer swapping himself with this hostage and now unfortunately the sad news that he has died from those injuries, geraldo you hear these stories so inspiring. you wonder what was going through his mind in that moment to get that motivation and say i'm going to be in your spot and probably die because of it. geraldo: i am in awe of this man his name is arnold beltran.
6:10 am
he was a 45 year old deputy commander and they are military police and when he swapped himself out for the female hostage it brings tears to my eyes that an iraq war veteran also you should know. when he did that, for this, you know, they had a ranking military officer and was the first one who got shot and he left the cell phone there so his colleagues outside could know if the negotiations went to hell in a handbasket as soon as they heard the shot it was too late but imagine giving up yourself that way, giving up yourself to free one of the female hostages. it just is the most nobel act, you know, you were early and i was very delighted to see how you were honoring our own veterans who fell when the chopper was shot down or crashed the french since world war ii
6:11 am
have had a lame reputation when it comes to the military prowess , but they have tough as nails officers and soldiers and to see this nobility, this was something incredible and deeply touching and i would love the president to reach out to president macron and tell him how much the american people appreciate this kind of nobility , this kind of courage. >> abby: it's the ultimate heroism. geraldo: it's so touching in a cynical world to see this sincerity and absolute heroism and courage. pete: in that moment to make that decision he wasn't prepared for that when he woke up in the morning, finds himself there and makes that call. >> abby: and he probably didn't even think twice. pete: on that second thought he said i've got to do this. geraldo: that's even the special kind of courage you're absolutely right. >> abby: geraldo thanks for reminding us and highlighting that man. good to see you i do want to bring you quick headlines

6:17 am
lives rallies. abby: the goal to protest gun violence, griff jenkins is live for us all day in d.c. where the rally is about to begin. they're expecting what griff 500,000 people possibly? griff: 500,000, abbey and it's starting to live en up here. if you look over here they're doing a sound check that's the stage where they will be in the front for the first time we've seen students being led in we believe some maybe parkland students and that area reserved for them and a lot of celebrit ies, mile it say russ, d emi lovato, as well as hamilton 's create or, and then if you look here you can see that it's not 500,000 but they're starting to fill in and they've brought their signs enough is enough. they want there's more laws, gun laws they want and it's very very interesting and we actually talked to one of the marchers that's come here from charleston , south carolina and i asked her this is all about i
6:18 am
said is this going to be a game changer and this is what joanna said. >> this is a game changer and congress needs to take a really good look because come november we are going to turn the tables on congress and elect ourselves a new congress. griff: so we'll see exactly what this produces today but their message is loud and clear and we'll hear a lot of talk from the stage but we talked earlier in this show you talked to julie gunlock, our guest in the 6:00 hour who says really washington is getting pretty fatigued with marchs and protests here is what julie gunlock says. >> i do think to some degree all these marchs and hollywood stars and networks pushing this leads to a little bit of protest fatigue. griff: and you know, ed and abbey, we have seen two things in the last 24 hours, one is the spending bill which has the
6:19 am
stricter background checks in that bill as well as the president tweeting that he has instructed attorney general jeff sessions to move to ban all gun bump stocks for guns so it'll be interesting to talk to some of these people and find out what they think about what's already being done but it's clear they want more assault rifles from the people i talk to are front and center what they want banned guys? abby: and they're fired up about it busy day for you. coming up a former cop visit to his son's school and is shocked by what he did not see and we'll hear from him just ahead. >> where are they going to look to do a pledge of allegiance because there's no flag. this is stage 1 of brainwashing our young people.

>> well, in 1820, thomas jefferson said he was awakened by a fire bell in the night at the missouri compromise. he was concerned that the tensions over slavery in this country would lead to a civil war. in 1854, you get really the flames starting in this fire so if jefferson was still alive he would be awakened by this fire and kansas produces john brown and when he invades western virginia, it's virginia he's invading the south, the fire has started, so we can call john brown's raid the accelerant that starts the civil war that fire. abby: and you have been on this series legends & lives for all of them the third one i imagine is your favorite because the civil war is your expertise, so let's show people just a small clip. >> if you surrender now, the lives will be spared.

to him. >> the flag means everything. the reason that i'm able to come on tv, the reason i'm able to exist and the reason that my son is at a school that's as diverse as it is because of the flag. pete: he spoke with his son's teacher who claims it was all a misunderstanding and has decided to buy the classroom a new flag but in doing so made a much more larger important point and an arizona restaurant is getting heat on social media for banning crying kids a customer complaining on facebook she was kicked out because sushi sen, because he one year old daughter was with her. the woman saying the hostess ushered her family out before pointing to a sign that read in part, if your child starts to cry or makes a loud noise we may ask you to bring your child outside until he or she has settled down and the restaurant owner denies it saying they would never refuse to serve anyone. and those are your headlines, read not as well as they would have been read if read by abbey. abby: i kind of enjoyed listen ing to that though, great
6:36 am
job. ed: it was a misunderstanding. pete: uh-huh. abby: let's bring in michelle ma lkin, and host of cr tv michelle always good to see you. >> great to see you too abbey i want to just give you my congratulations as well. it's great to see your facebook on the channel but i will tell you there's no more rewarding, satisfying, and challenging job that you will ever have than as matherhood and i'll tell you as a mom of a 17 year old now whose going to be graduating from high school it is an incredible journey so congrats. abby: it means the world coming from you and makes you more passionate about issues going on in this country, you're thinking about your own kids now so i understand that and i now get why you're so passionate about things you believe in and i want you to talk about one of those sanctuary cities the movement seems to be spreading huntington beach in california might follow loss lalamatos in california sanctuary city law where do you see this going what are your thoughts? >> well i think that among many
6:37 am
responsible law enforcement officials, police chiefs, and mayors of cities and counties in california that do not agree with the hijacking of that state by open border, that they have a responsibility and they realize it and they all took oaths of office to uphold the constitution and the laws of this country, and so i think in essence, the anti-sanctuary movement that we're now seeing that was spurred on by the lawsuit by the doj and the position of our president very strongly opposing the basically the abdication of responsibility by california officials i think this movement constitutes a real effort by some of these responsible leaders to make california sane again. now whether it's too late i think is the question, but remember that we're talking about three pieces of legislation that have undermined the safety of californians and by extension the rest of us.
6:38 am
the first one dealing with undermining work site enforcement, by private employer s which is outrageous. the second one dealing with detention, and the inability to share information among local and state officials with federal ice agents which as we know this channel has reported time and time again about the bloody consequences of sanctuary policies and the third one having to do with the actual release dates of so-called removeable aliens and being able to give that information to the fed's so they can pick people up before they're released and of course i have reported many times over the years about these catch and release policies that have had deadly deadly effects. pete: well said michelle well while we're on the topic of california and insanity got to get your take on this topic. parents are outraged after planned parenthood got invited to a middle school mental health fair presumably to provide information. talk to us about the mind set of a school that would say planned
6:39 am
parenthood and what they provide is welcome at a middle school. so yes this is cliffton middle school in monrovia, california and apparently the superintendent has reported to parents that they didn't know, the school district didn't know that planned parenthood was going to show up and i think that the bottom line here of course is that the lack of transparency and disclosure is an outrage and the idea of planned parenthood showing up at a science fair when they lie all the time about what they actually do within the walls of their clinics. will there also be equal time for crisis pregnancy centers to share information about for example, the science of ultrasound and what actually is happening and the development of unborn life. you've got a death lobby that is funded by federal tax dollars. you want to blame someone? how about the omnibus bill that gives $500 million to subsidize planned parent parenthood's
6:40 am
activities and title 10 grants as well and i a lot should be directed at congress as much as the local school district. ed: michelle on that point are you disappointed the president signed the omnibus when there's federal funding for planned parenthood as well as by the way the bill does not cutoff funding for sanctuary cities as promised >> that's exactly right. i'm beyond disappointed. i'm disgusted. i'm disgusted with the so-called gop leadership this falls squarely on the shoulders of paul ryan and mitch mcconnell. it is business as usual. people need to open up their eyes about how these appropriations bills and every piece of legislation that passes rammed down our throats and without any consideration of transparency and true deliberation by so-called deliberating bodies. abby: well your anger speaks for a lot of american people waking up. ed: i think we should send you to capitol hill. i wouldn't want to be in a meeting with you and speaker ryan. pete: michelle thanks for joining us. i would drain the swamp. thanks.
